Green Belt Training (Analyze Phase)
September 20, 2005 at 6:45 am #40745
We have just started on the Six Sigma road map, have 2 Black Belts (trained) and are on our first phase of green belt training. The question is… how much detail should we go into for the analyze phase? Basic things like Pareto, Histograms, Process Capability?? or more in depth like ANOVA, Hypothesis Testing, Main Effects etc..
Comments would be greatly appreciated.

I just finished my Green Belt Training. The trainer had a very good concept of teaching the methods, but not to dig to deep into the details of statistics. His credo was that the understanding of the methods is key. The statistical details and the application of the correct test method can be left for the BB training. From my point of view it is a very good approach.

My suggestion is to have a good mix of qualitative and quantitative analysis tools. Within quantitative tools, have a good mix of visual/graphical and mathematical tools. That provides the student with a high level direction on the universe of tools. For instance, I would include the following tools at the very least:
Qualitative – Fishbone diagram, Value Analysis, Process Analysis
Quantitative – Graphical – Pareto, Histogram, probability distributions, control charts
Quantitative – mathematical – Hypothesis testing, process capability For choosing which test to do for hypothesis testing, you will need to introduce ANOVA, 1 sample t test, 2 sample t test, Chi Square, etc. but you need not get into too much detail about how these tests work, just enough to enable them to select which ones to look at.
Hope this helps
